Greetings wise wizards of EE:
I'm helping a friend who has a custom built desktop personal computer, which has been abruptly crashing after producing the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.
My friend has done quite a bit of troubleshooting on his own, from resetting his machine via the Windows 10 utility, dusting out his fans, resetting memory and graphics card, updating system and graphics drivers even placing new thermal paste on the processor heat sink.
I must confess I am not a strong advocate of custom-built computers, as they can be unpredictable, but he assures me it was built by a seasoned professional and has served him well for the last five years.
I now request an analysis of these attached Minidump files, which he copied from the Minidump folder, and sent to me. Though I am grateful for any reply, I would ask specifically for an analysis of these Minidump files, rather than general security and maintenance advice, so that I can tackle the issue directly.
Many thanks in advance and take care,
so i advice to run memtest 86+ https://www.memtest.org/
Many thanks indeed for your rapid replies to my request for a minidump analysis. Thanks to your help, we will troubleshoot the graphics card as well as the memory corruption.
Helpful wizards, one and all.
May the wind be at your back and take care,
